I think this is the right place to post an apron... if nothing else, it protects your clothing. I made this out of some fabric I found at Jo-Ann Fabrics, after seeing the fabric used by another craftster for a purse. I used this pattern from about.com, http://sewing.about.com/od/aprons/ss/oneyardapron.htm

Without further ado, here are the photos!


While it's not my best sewing job, it'll serve its purpose. I haven't sewn anything substantial in a while, but since this turned out decently, I'm gonna keep at it.


The apron on the recliner... just to give you an idea of the impressive wingspan.


Closeup of the pockets... I am in love with zig-zag stitch, and wish I'd used it for the rest of the pockets/apron because it's that awesome. I placed these closer together, because the way the pattern has you place them, they look really odd. You might even be able to just do one larger piece of fabric and sew it up the middle to make the pocket. I didn't do that because I didn't think of it until I was placing the pockets. I think they kind of look like a butt, but it's ok, because it's kind of funny.

Just wanted to share my work, let me know what you think!
